What is wrong with my code?

def square(number):
    tino = number ** 2 
    return tino

Wrap inside try:

def square(number):
    return number * number

try:
    your_number=int(input("Enter your number:"))
    squared_number = square(your_number)
    print("The square of your number is {}".format(squared_number))
except EOFError as e : pass

Thank you very much Jonathan
